WIP leaves

Leaf varietiesToday I’m working on several types of leaf.  It is easier to make several in the hoop and then cut them out, rather than waste fabric.   Also once one is cut out the tension is not good.

 

The 2 wired only leaves are for the Viola, the pale green for Watercress, the dark leaf is for the Chilli and the last is one that didn’t work out for the clover.

The hoop I’m using is a comfortable 4″ size and threads are DMC- 2 strands.    Each leaf is Satin stitched.

From top to bottom..  centres are =Back stitched;   Chain stitched and the lowest was Stem stitched.

Time for a cuppa and then back to the needle and threads.

  1. You are so smart and organised, saving fabric, keeping tension, getting variation and enjoying every minute of it.

    • Organized? Never understood the word. ;-))))) I’d be the most disorganized person you’d meet…now This word I know well.

      I guess I do enjoy muddling along.

  2. Such a wonderful example of the process. Thanks!
    But I must write 100 times that I will not start any new projects this year. I will not start any new projects this year. I will not ….

    • Maybe instead of the 100 repetitions, you might squeeze in one or two projects instead?????

  3. I think my favourite is the one with the chain stitched centre – the texture is nice for the centre vein of a leaf.

    • That would be the Chilli leaf.
